"Yesterday [February 9], one soldier, probably due to the sustained concussion, lost terrain orientation and left his observation post in the direction of enemy positions," the Brigade's press service said in a statement on Sunday, February 10.

The soldier could be captured by Russia-backed militants, the report said.

"Zakarpattia Legion remains vigilant and alert. The search for our brother in arms by all means and methods available is under way," the press service added.

It is also noted that another serviceman was wounded amid Russian mercenaries' attack on a Ukrainian stronghold. He was taken to a hospital and provided with medical assistance.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Officer of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Anatoly Stefan had posted a footage showing Ukrainian troops destroy an infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) of Russian-backed militants at Svitlodarska Duha bulge in Donbas.
